Although northbound freeway ramps at Rose Avenue in Oxnard reopened Friday, they will temporarily close again beginning tonight.
Exit and entrance ramps will close from 9 p.m. until 5 a.m. through Thursday to allow for striping and the removal of temporary barriers, construction officials said.
In addition, motorists will encounter a series of lane closures in the area this week because of construction work that is likely to slow traffic even more than usual on the congested stretch of freeway:
* The southbound left lane will be closed from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. through Friday.
* The northbound right lane will be closed from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Wednesday.
* In addition, both the northbound left and center lanes will be closed from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Thursday.
The disruptions are due to the new $11-million interchange and bridge under construction at Rose Avenue. The project is expected to be completed by April.
